Police are appealing for information after a report of a fire in our area.
The incident occurred on Dallas Court in Hemlington at around 6:25pm on Tuesday.
A conifer tree was set alight in the garden of a house on Dallas Court, which could have spread to the nearby house.
Damage was caused to guttering and a window due to the heat.
At the time of the fire a family was at home but were fortunately able to escape unharmed.
A 14-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with the incident and has been released on police bail whilst enquiries continue.
Anyone with information is asked to call Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
A revamp of Loftus’s Coronation Park has moved a step forward.
Planning permission has been granted for various elements which are part of a multi-million pound regeneration scheme for the town.
Redcar and Cleveland Council’s regulatory committee approved plans to provide a 17 space car park on the park’s western side, a larger grassed area to its centre, a play area on the eastern side and a tree-lined boulevard pathway leading up to nearby Duncan Place.
Loftus Town Council backed the application as part of the wider regeneration plans for the east Cleveland town and said it would welcome any plants that were removed in construction works being reused in other parts of Loftus.
It's been announced that a church service for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is to be held in Guisborough.
A Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving for the life of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has been arranged in Guisborough on Sunday at 3pm at the Church of St Nicholas.
Residents of Redcar and Cleveland are welcome to attend the service, which will be led by the Bishop of Whitby, the Right Reverend Paul Ferguson.
Following the announcement that Monday will be an official Bank Holiday, many public buildings will close, but all condolence books in Redcar and Cleveland will re-open on Tuesday until 5 pm, which is the last day as per the national protocol.
On Monday, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council’s buildings will close and all but key and critical services will be stood down to enable people to spend time with family on the day of the Queen’s funeral.
The Dunsdale Household and Recycling Centre will open as normal at 8am, but will close early, at 3pm. There remains a requirement to book a slot before attending.
